Biscuit Box Lap Steel Guitar

A clip to show how this Biscuit Box Lap Steel Guitar sounds. It was made in around four hours work with cheap materials bought in the local DIY shop. Only the tuners (and the strings) are specifically designed for guitars.

The purpose of this project is to insert the construction of such a simple instrument as a prelude to a workshop on how to play lap steel guitar. That way the students will build their own instrument in a few hours before learning some chords and techniques.
